Congratulations to the winner, never knew his real name but his screen name is really familiar...

In fact i'm pretty sure i heard about him on several articles posted on an internet tracking site.

So he did won it after all, congrats to him and his persistence! I saw a bit of that ft live in order to get the password for some freeroll that pokerstars was offering online. That danish guy that finished 3rd was full of crazy moves lol. saw him sucking out calling the french guys all-in with AKs against his A6os and doing a little dance already at the flop... and the next hand losing another all-in pre-flop when he had AA and the other guy QJos lololol... made his little dance a bit too soon there haha...

Hehe lukasb I know who you mean, the 'el toro' guy.
The one with the shirt of Barca during the final table and a very high temperament.
I was not against his temperament, rather against his poor poker ethics on the table.
- the one lukasb said, he turned over AA after the other player went all in PF with QJos and screamed to joy even before the flop was dealt, as if he already won the tournament. Eventually QJos hit the straight.

- He acts sometimes when it's not his turn already

Was kind of happy he lost.

Tidy takedown.

Nice to a UK guy win some, so often the Americans dominate events

Nice to see a fellow Brit win the title. The British poker scene is quite strong and there are quite a few up and coming player. Beware the rest of the world, the Brits are coming!!

How much was the buy-in for this tournament? Because we see a nice number of reg players. The tournament attracted a record field of 1,234 players, and on Saturday the final eight players returned to battle it out on the final table.
